SO VERY SWEET AND FUNNY OFF THE BAT. SHE REALLY PUTS YOU AT EASE AND IF YOU DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT COLORS YOU'D LIKE ON YOUR FACE, SHE ASKS ABOUT YOUR DRESS AND COLORS OF THE WEDDING, TELLS YOU WHETHER THOSE KIND OF COLORS WOULD LOOK GREAT OR NOT AND SUGGESTS SOMETHING BETTER THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND AWAY! I'VE USED HER FOR 2 MORE EVENTS SINCE THEN BECAUSE SHE IS THAT GOOD. AS A MATTER OF FACT MY MOH WHO IS ONE THAT NO ONE TOUCHES HER FACE BECAUSE SHE DOES HER OWN MAKEUP WHICH IS PRETTY ENOUGH, ASKED ::) STEPHANIE COULD DO HER MAKEUP AS WELL BECAUSE SHE WAS BLOWN AWAY WITH MINE AND STEPHANIE EVEN GAVE HER BETTER TIPS TO APPLYING HER OWN MAKEUP IN THE FUTURE. STEPHANIE TRULY IS THE BEST, DON'T MISS OUT ON HER, SHE BOOKS UP QUICK BECAUSE OF HER AWESOME TANNING JOBS THAT SHE DOES AS WELL. THANKS SO MUCH STEPHANIE, I ALREADY MISS YOU AND I SERIOUSLY CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU ON THE 8TH OR 9TH OF SEPTEMBER FOR TANNING AND THE 10TH OF SEPTEMBER FOR MY MAKEUP!

Shannon was great! My company hired her for a community Halloween event for children and we were blown away by her talent. She was able to paint every kid's face that wanted a face painting and did an outstanding job! I have not seen better face painting.

Thank you Joanna. You did more then I expected. From face painting to balloons I couldn't ask for any other person to help celebrate my daughter's 1st birthday. Loved how you worked around the mickey mouse clubhouse theme and patience with all children. Thank you again

Chandra Wood was the makeup artist for my wedding on June 19th and she did makeup for my bridal party at the Hilton Harbor Island. Chandra began promptly at 8:30am, as promised. I watched Chandra as she set up for the day and that, in itself, was amazing. She choice the perfect location to set-up her makeup chair - facing the beautiful water of the bay! Every lady that sat in her chair was able to see the flowing water, sailboats and the bright sun as they got their makeup done. PERFECTION! She had everything laid out neatly and chose the perfect colors according to everyone's taste. A few things impressed most about Chandra: She smiled ALL day! You can tell she has a passion for her work by the sheer joy that she exudes as she performs her art. Also, she listened to everyone and their needs/concerns and did what she knew they'd love. Chandra went above and beyond by taking on additional appointments. Once everyone saw her work, they HAD to get in her chair! She was flexible, cheerful and just a JOY to have around. There's nothing more we could've asked for. Chandra's work is amazing and she has a personality to match! Thank you for everything!

My experience with Madison was excellent. She did an exceptional job face painting my husband and I for Dia de los Muertos. Her pricing was better than reasonable. It was such a great deal I was shocked. She was even willing to paint my 1.5 year olds face for free but he wasn't ready for it. I think he's a little young for face paint. He was too scared so we skipped it. I was so pleased with the outcome of our face paint. If I ever need face painting in the future she is my gal. Thank you Madison!!!
